Public Test 0.6.0, Part II

The changes coming with Update 0.6.0 are so big, they need two Public Tests to get the needed info and feedback. Click here to see what we focused on in Part I. 

Key Features

Commander Skill Updates -  Since Part I, we tweaked the Commander Skill tree: 

  • Fire Prevention: the skill was moved to Tier 4 (+1). Fire prevention value was increased from -7% to -10%. New feature of this skill that was introduced during Public Test 1 (-1 fire point in central part of ship) proved to be very efficient. We decided to make survivability build more dedicated, so this skill became even more powerful, with increased cost.
  • Survivability Expert: the skill was moved to Tier 3 (-1). Health points increase was lowered from 400 to 350 per ship tier. Thus, it got more accessible at the cost of slightly reduced efficiency.
  • Inertial HE Fuse: Chance of Fire penalty was reduced from -6% to -3%. Penetration bonus was increased from +25% to +30%. The skill proved to be too specific because of penalty and caused too much “no effect” situations. Now, it does lower Fire Chance noticeably without removing it almost completely.
  • Evasive Maneuver: concealment bonus was reduced from -40% to -20%. Survivability bonus was increased from +15% to 75%. We decided to shift the focus of this skill to survivability in order to make it more general-purpose and exclude some concealment abuse scenarios.
  • Adrenaline Rush: efficiency bonus was increased from 0.1% to 0.2% for each percent of HP lost. While the general idea behind the skill worked, we decided to make it more competitive at its tier.

Elite XP - The reworked Commander system introduces a new kind of XP earned by Commanders maxed-out at 19 skill points. You can use Elite XP to train and retrain other Commanders. Think of it as Free XP, but for Commanders. 

Clans - Now rolling out in the test! Assemble a team of up to 30 fellow captains and get your Clan tag! Clans have their own private chat channel and the following ranks:

  • Fleet Commander - All permissions
  • Fleet Commander's deputy - All permissions except clan disbanding and appointment of Fleet Commander Deputies
  • Military Commissar - Permission to issue clan membership invitations
  • Officer - Membership, but no permissions
